4.0 out of 5 stars Throw it on the `barbie'
Pete Evans is a popular Australian chef and he presents recipes to cook on grills; although, for only a couple does he say that they can also be cooked on the stovetop - it would seem that most of them would also work in skillets, frying pans and grills, especially if they were cast iron on an indoor stove.

There are many pictures of him and the scenery around...

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Fancy
I was looking forward to receiving this book as it had been recommended in Woman and Home.

The recipes are too fancy and time consuming, so wouldn't recommend this book

4.0 out of 5 stars Throw it on the `barbie', 14 July 2011
This review is from: My Grill (Hardcover)
Pete Evans is a popular Australian chef and he presents recipes to cook on grills; although, for only a couple does he say that they can also be cooked on the stovetop - it would seem that most of them would also work in skillets, frying pans and grills, especially if they were cast iron on an indoor stove.

There are many pictures of him and the scenery around his cooking locations. Each recipe has a page devoted to it and then a large colour picture. He gives some information about each dish and some substitutions than can be used. It is nice to have some grilling recipes that are a bit different than the normal throw on a hamburger or steak, but not all that difficult to make. My only problem with many of his dishes is that you have to have a taste for chilies, chili oil, chili powder, pepper flakes, hot paprika or seasonings such as Szechuan peppercorns. It does get a bit tiresome to have so many fiery tasting dishes... granted you can omit and lessen the amounts. There are some lovely fish recipes such as; grilled hamachi with hoisin glaze, halibut with lemon and parsley butter, trout with wild mushrooms, prosciutto and garlic.

The book is divided into 3 sections, grilling away from home, easy casual recipes and those for an evening meal. There are no desserts, but some drink recipes, our favorite is fish house punch made with rum, brandy and guava juice. Two other family favorites have been; mushrooms on toast with ricotta and Pacific sole with warm dressing of garlic, parsley and red wine vinegar.
Grilling aficionados and cookbook collectors would probably enjoy this cookbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice book, wonderful food, 2 May 2013
This review is from: My Grill (Hardcover)
I'm a lover of BBQ's and this book was recommended to me. The book contains recipes for burgers through to scallop pancakes. Most of the recipes can be cooked in the kitchen as well as on the BBQ and there several that would require the use of a camp oven or hotpot. Having cooked a number of things from it I would say there is something for everyone. The book contains quite a few things that are now firm favourites and have wowed guests. The Marinated Pork Chops with Pineapple & Ginger Mojo, Vietnamese Barbecued Chicken Salad Baguettes, Piri Piri Chicken Burgers and Peaches with Amaretto are all wonderful. Plus his own burger recipe has been made so often in our house now that we hardly need the book out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Present for a Man, 10 July 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Grill (Hardcover)
The book wasn't for me, it was a for a man who, with his girlfriend and their children, are friends of mine. If you are ever looking for a present for a man ... this is it. Hard covered, beautiful, smart, interesting recipes, good prose. AND he'll do the cooking. Cannot be bad.
